Since depopulation and aging in rural areas had become serious social problems globally, studies on reconstructing rural areas have been developed in various academic fields from sociology to economics. To take up these kind of topics as a researcher, individual contribution is required as well as writing a paper from the result of collecting and analyzing information from local communities in subject area. This paper particularly focuses on reporting life histories of nine locals of Domkhar, a village in Ladakh region of Northern part of India where I had researched for six years, as I got the opportunity to interview with them through participating a project to make a booklet for promoting their local products whilst helping revitalizing their community. According to the interview survey, some facts have been found; first, men age fifty to sixty years old have mostly experienced military related jobs while women in the same age group stayed in the village to be the main forces to run its agro-pastoral industry. Second, most of the villagers supported "Gomparanjon", a hardly approached idea, as recommended landscape of their own village. That means they have not established sense of evaluating their own everyday view, and they have not yet reached to the point to gain the objective landscape on themselves.
